Welcome to Homestead Farm South. We are located in the Blue Ridge Mountain community of Pisgah Forest, only four miles from the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest and just ten minutes from the town of Brevard and the Brevard Music Center. Nearby sites include Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, and the Cradle of Forestry. Also nearby is the Dupont State Forest, including Hooker, High, and Triple Falls. Other area sites include Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Carl Sandburg's historic home, and Flat Rock Playhouse.
If you are tired of tiny hotel rooms with heat and air that are impossible to set, noisy halls, the trip to the Laundromat when you'd rather be sight-seeing, having to eat every meal out, not having a place to store the fish you just caught, and all the other things you dread about a vacation, then this is the place for you. Leave home without leaving the comforts of home!
We offer a one bedroom, air conditioned suite in an upstairs apartment with a private entrance that accommodates up to four people. Completed in 2000, the apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with bathtub, washer and dryer, living room with a queen-size sleeper sofa, separate bedroom with a king-size bed and plenty of closet space, and a sundeck. The apartment is on a 22-acre farm with magnificent views that borders the French Broad River. Our farm animals include horses, goats, sheep, chickens, and turkeys, as well as Great Pyrenees dogs.

Vacation Rental near Brevard, NC
Homestead Farm South is named after Ken's ancestral home in Connecticut, Homestead Farm Dairy. When Ken and Kim moved to the mountains of North Carolina, they decided they would do something unconventional for a couple that had lived in the suburbs; they bought farm land and built Homestead Farm South. Ken wanted bison, Kim wanted goats and sheep, so they have goats and sheep, as well as a horse, chickens, turkeys, a donkey, and guardian dogs.
Ken & Kim Burton purchased this apartment in 2000
Ken and Kim spent many months looking at properties, and they fell in love with the Little River valley area. Ken found this property when a colleague at work told him friends of his had property for sale, and when his coworker took him to show him the property, it was exactly where he and Kim had said they wanted to live.
Kim found the house plan and they made some changes to make it, including adding the apartment over the garage. Originally intended for visiting family and friends, or for a future Brevard College student willing to live there in exchange for helping out, they decided to try using it as a vacation rental at the encouragement of their contractor and with the assistance of a nearby B&B. It was a decision they have not regretted because they have had many wonderful people stay there through the years
Thanks for everything. We had a great time! We'll check our schedule when we get home and give you a call. Have a safe 4th.
This was a great place to stay - extremely clean with high end amenities (very comfortable king sized bed, nice pillows and plush towels) - close to town and good places to eat. We really enjoyed our stay and the animals were something we don't get to see often. Very nice.
My husband and I stayed here for the weekend to see the fall colors and to enjoy the mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more convenient location or a more perfect place to stay! The apartment was clean and tidy. The farm was gorgeous and we loved all the animals, especially Cricket the little donkey! :) We stayed busy hiking the waterfalls in DuPont, picking apples at Sky Top Orchard (highly recommend the apple cider donuts!), hiking Graveyard Fields up on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and exploring the quaint towns of Hendersonville and Brevard. Ken and Kim were so nice and have created the perfect mountain getaway.
We were visiting our son for Family Weekend at Brevard College. This beautiful apartment is only 10 minutes away. We had such a great experience in August that we re booked the apartment. Once again, it was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. We were able to sit back and relax on the small deck overlooking the farm and the animals.
We enjoyed visiting the Sliding Rock as well as some of the amazing Waterfalls on this visit.
We would recommend this for a couples getaway, girls weekend or for a smaller family. Looking forward to another peaceful visit soon. Thanks Kim & Ken!!!!
Came for a mountain bike weekend. Couldn't ask for a better place. Very central location to DuPont and Pisgah. Just a couple miles from Oskar Blues and The Hub. 10 outa 10.
Kim and Ken have created the IDEAL mountain getaway! The view, the ease of accessibility to Brevard, Pisgah, Dupont, Hendersonville, the scenic route to and from - Perfect! So quiet at night.
The apartment was pristine and beautifully appointed. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was HOT! We cooked our own meals, except for one dinner in town, and the kitchen lacked nothing! It was truly as convenient as being at home.
The large male sheep out back seems to know that people mean "food", because he engaged me in multiple stock-still staring contests whenever I opened the door! Haha! As an animal lover, it was so nice to see such well cared-for, content animals in such a healthy environment.
Many kudos! I'd recommend this place to anyone, and can guarantee that we'll be back.
This newly renovated apartment sits on a pretty amazing farm property. We love its quiet charm. It really feels like home. It has off-street parking, the furnishings are super comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked and the rental is decorated beautifully. There is plenty of room to sit and relax. Kim and Ken were personable and very helpful. They live right there on the farm but give you your privacy. The apartment was spotless...did we mention that already? We were very happy with the location as it is very close to our son's college "Brevard College." We would highly recommend this vacation rental.
